'Guitar Legends: Gone Too Soon' Remembers Guitar Legends Who Died Before Their Time

Guitar World's new Guitar Legends: Gone Too Soon is a tribute to the fallen heroes of the guitar world: from Randy Rhoads, Dimebag Darrell and Kurt Cobain to Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The editors of Guitar World, the world's best-selling guitar magazine, have compiled this ultimate collection dedicated to the lives — and in some cases, premature deaths — of many of the legendary guitarists from rock, blues and metal who left us too soon.

This wide-ranging and incredibly thorough anthology leaves no stone unturned as it chronicles the careers of numerous guitar icons who have passed into the great beyond. In Gone Too Soon, you'll learn everything there is to know about these fallen guitarists.

Also includes: In-Depth Bios, Their Greatest Moments, Gravesites and more.
